Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes author Bronwen Hruska to the store to discuss and sign her new book, Accelerated, on Tuesday, October 9th at 7pm.
In this striking debut novel, a father and his son discover what lies beneath the gilded facade of a tony Upper East Side private school: an epidemic of over-medicated children. A single dad and struggling artist, Sean sticks out like a sore thumb among the power-soccer-mom cliques and ladies-who-lunch that congregate on the steps every afternoon. But at least Toby is thriving and getting the best education money can buy - or is he?
